Washer hot water fills fine, but cold water fills slowly. The rest of cycle works fine. Water lines were just replaced. There is not a clog in the supply hoses.


First you should remove the hoses. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also, remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video at that will walk you thru the testing a water inlet valve. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Cold water starts and stops during fill and rinse cycle


This problem is commonly caused by a water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve) that has a defective cold water solenoid. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment, rust or calcified deposits can accumulate in the inlet valve and cause it not to close properly. Usually when they start leaking, or not functioning at all, you need to replace them. The following link explains how to access and replace the valve:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575881-replacing_water_inlet_valve_on_whirlpool


If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement valve is 285805. Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

How do you locate cold water relay


There is no cold water relay. There is a water inlet valve with a cold water solenoid on it, though. If you have no cold water, any of the following could be a cause:

1. Clogged sediment screen on the cold water inlet. You will need to shut off the water and remove the fill hose from the back of the washer and check the inlet screen on the cold water inlet on the back of the washer. Clean if necesssary. NOTE: This can be a common problem if you have hard water or use well water. Cleaning with a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water using cotton swabs can dissolve most accumulations of rust and sediment.

2. Poor electrical connection on the cold water solenoid on the inlet valve. Locate the electrical connection for the cold water solenoid (usually color coded BLUE for cold water, RED for hot water) and unplug. Check the electrical contacts for any signs of corrosion. Clean the contacts if necessary.

3. Bad cold water solenoid. With the electrical connection removed and the washer unplugged, take a resistance reading on the solenoid contacts. They should read something around 600-800 ohms if good. If bad, you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

4. Kinked or clogged fill hose.

NOTE: Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing.

If you determine the water inlet valve to be defective, the following link explains how to access and/or replace:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r600647-replacing_water_inlet_valve_kenmore

The part number for the inlet valve is 285805 and can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

Prices will vary between these sites, so shop all of them for the best price.

If you need a diagram to assist you, the first three websites mentioned usually have excellent exploded view illustrations that accompany their parts lists. You can use these as a helpful reference. The water inlet valve is listed as item 18 under the "Control and Rear Panel Parts" heading.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool, and use Whirlpool parts, so these instructions will apply.

I have a ge washer wpsr3120w0aa that leaks water when rinsing


Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced. To check the valve assembly:


how-to-repair-a-washing-machine-2.jpg
©2006 Publications International, Ltd.
If an inlet valve is faulty, check the water connection and the
valve screens. Try gently tapping the solenoids;
if this doesn't work, replace the inlet valve assembly.

Step 1: Remove the back service panel and disconnect the hot-water and cold-water hoses to the valves.

Step 2: Remove the hoses connected to the valves inside the cabinet. Also disconnect the wires from the terminals. Back out the screws holding the valves to the machine. The inlet valves have solenoids (a coil of wire that carries a current) inside the housing. These can be tested, but chances are the valves are simply worn out.

Step 3: Tap the solenoids with a screwdriver handle. If this doesn't work, replace the entire inlet valve assembly. Repairs usually cost more than a new part. Make sure the replacement valve assembly is exactly the same type as the old one. Install it in reverse order of the way you disconnected the old one.

Troubleshooting Water Leaks

Water leaks in a washer are often difficult to trace. There are many possibilities to look for. The problem could be a loose connection, a broken hose, a cracked component, or a defective seal. It could also be a hole in the tub. If a hole in the tub is the problem, it's usually best to replace the washer.

Most leaks can be eliminated by tightening water connections and replacing deteriorated components. To stop a leak:

Step 1: Check the lid seal. If faulty, replace with a new gasket.

Step 2: Check the hoses at faucet connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 3: Check the hoses at water valve connections. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 4: Check the drain hoses. Tighten connections or replace hoses.

Step 5: Check the inlet nozzles. Tighten connections or replace nozzles.

Step 6: Check the splash guard. Tighten connections or replace.

Step 7: Check any plastic valve. Tighten connections or replace.

Step 8: Check the outlet hose to drain. Tighten connections or replace hose.

Step 9: Check the water pump, using the procedures that follow.
